Botbots Series 3 Blindbags at BigW stores in QLD (Garden City and Toowoomba)
Found SS rampage, longhaul, helicopter drift, KSI boss and siege megatron and thundercracker in Footscray Kmart
Via Ozformers Botbots Series 4 found at a BigW store in Melbourne (Karingal).
I\'m going to take one of those blind bags and put it in my dishwasher detergent port and see what happens
Smart of Hasbro to alternate between bright and dark colors for the waves.
Series 1 -Red
Series 2 - Green
Series 3 - Orange
Series 4 - Blue.
Makes it easier to quickly check the shelves and tell if a newer wave is in, as you've got a pretty solid contrast. Wouldn't be surprised if Series 5 is Yellow and Series 6 is Purple. At which point I dunno if they rotate back around to Red or do something else.

Don't think I've seen this one listed here yet...
Spotted at Mr Toys Toyworld, Morayfield (judging by the conversation between staff while I was there the "Mr Toys" part is relevant):
They had at least two of him (the second is on the next shelf down behind a TR Trypticon). Price tag is $299 if you're having trouble making it out in the photo.
damn $299. amazons a bit cheaper. awesome that you found this in aus though
It's not terrible, though. $266 online against $299 off the shelf seems somewhat reasonable. I still think I'd prefer to wait for BigW to start selling them out, though, since I'm not a massive fan of the character - managed to snag both Devastator and Trypticon like that for $150 and $180 respectively (thought I'd missed out on those guys, then they show up at a good price locally!).
On the subject of Amazon AU, they have Siege Jetfire up for $101.33 w/ free shipping. I don't know if that's just a new price (I recall it being $140-ish before) or a promotion of some kind, but that's seriously tempting. *ed: Too tempting - he should arrive by the end of next week.
It’s great you spotted the big boy in the wild. Not so much that price tag. Toyworld in VIC has him for $250.
yeah i am hoping big w get omega as well, the lowest i've seen him on amazon was $245 so he's gone up a bit. jetfire for $101 is an excellent price, i remember when amazon 1st put up his listing he was $225, maybe omega's price will drop to in time. enjoy, it's a great figure. wish amazon au would list skywarp, he's an exclusive for them but they haven't listed him.
I have Siege Jetfire and in my opinion he is so worth it. The size is great, the transformation is fairly smooth, and the accessories make him look even better in both modes. The only problem I have is his "flame" plastics that fit in the back of his engines tend to be loose and can fall out. Otherwise, awsome bot!!
i love his accessories. makes him look like a bounty hunter or something
Wave 5 is at Myer now.
Found these two along with Sideswipe and Cog at the Northlands Myer. $28 each because of the sale going on. I picked up ol' Spinister.
Shame that it seems Mirage and Barricade were skipped here, but what can ya doooo?
